the service at the counter and on board was excellent. they allow at no cost one checked piece of luggage. for a short one hour flight, they offered a hot sándwich and berverages. the plan very modern, individual monitora with a wide variety of óptions. last week i flew latam on a two hours flight that felt worse than a bus trip. this is my second flight on avianca Brazil and the same great service. best option for domestic flights within Brazil and internacional flights as well. RECOMMENDED

modern plane, friendly service both at the airport and aboard

Didn’t make the flight because our first flight was delayed. We arrived when our flight was scheduled to take off but instead of holding that flight for maybe 30 minutes so everyone with connections could make it, we had to spend the night in Bogota. At least we were provided with hotel and food vouchers but don’t see how that is cost effective or good service for the airline when holding the plane for less than an hour would have allowed dozens of people to make it back the day we were scheduled to.

Personal at the check in desks were very nice and helpful. Seats in the air craft were comfortable. Flight AM to JFK was great! I had 3 seats blankets and pillows to my self.

That there was nothing ales but peanuts for a snack. I don't like peanuts. I understand that it was a 2hr flight, but I was tired and would of loved a blanket and they didn't have any. Flight AM to JFK again only one choice for breackfast, so I tried it, eggs w string beans and black beans. Did not like!!

The food was mediocre.

The customer service was terrible. Our connecting plane had not left yet and they did not let us on. They proceeded to tell us that our only option was to stay the night and take another flight the next day. Us and 10 other people had to get into an argument with the staff in order for something to be done. After begging, they finally said they would put us on an earlier flight the following morning and they put us in a hotel. The staff did not care about us or our missed flight/wasted money that we paid for the hotel at our destination that night. It took 30 minutes for a manager to give us the time of day. Horrible experience. It's really shocking that this is how the company treats its customers.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
